    Winemaker Notes

    Deep red with violet tones. The nose displays aromas of blueberry, blackberry, chocolate and spice. Highly concentrated flavors and sweet, soft tannins give substantial body and structure to the palate.

    Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec, 9% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

    A beautiful 2016 with fine tannins, currant, blackberry and hazelnut character. Medium-to-full body, tight and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Bordeaux blend. Cooler than the 2015. Drink in 2019.

    This red blend is always Cabernet Sauvignon-based, and the 2016 Cocodrilo Corte also has 10% Malbec, 9% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc from Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco. It's the first vintage for quite some time to use the five varietals from Bordeaux. As in many of the blended wines, the percentage of grapes sourced from the Valle de Uco is increasing. In 2016 they also reduced the amount of new oak and started replacing some American oak barrels with French ones. The blend feels very balanced and integrated, with the oak neatly folded into the fruit, and it has a harmonious and balanced palate with fine tannins and a very tasty finish. This follows the path toward more freshness that I already sensed with the 2015 vintage. There is a step (or two) up in complexity and depth from the Felino line.
